gettxoutproof

Returns a hex-encoded proof that "txid" was included in a block. NOTE: By default this function only works sometimes. This is when there is an unspent output in the utxo for this transaction. To make it always work, you need to maintain a transaction index, using the -txindex command line option or specify the block in which the transaction is included manually (by blockhash).

Arguments

  • txids
    string
    A json array of txids to filter [ "txid" (string) A transaction hash ,... ]
  • blockhash
    optionalstring
    If specified, looks for txid in the block with this hash

Returns

"data"           (string) A string that is a serialized, hex-encoded data for the proof.
// example(s) for gettxoutproof to come later

gettxoutsetinfo

finalizepsbt

Finalize the inputs of a PSBT. If the transaction is fully signed, it will produce a network serialized transaction which can be broadcast with sendrawtransaction. Otherwise a PSBT will be created which has the final_scriptSig and final_scriptWitness fields filled for inputs that are complete. Implements the Finalizer and Extractor roles.

Arguments

  • psbt
    string
    A base64 string of a PSBT
  • extract
    optionalboolean
    If true and the transaction is complete, extract and return the complete transaction in normal network serialization instead of the PSBT.

Returns

]
}
> lbrycrd-cli finalizepsbt "psbt"

fundrawtransaction

Add inputs to a transaction until it has enough in value to meet its out value. This will not modify existing inputs, and will add at most one change output to the outputs. No existing outputs will be modified unless "subtractFeeFromOutputs" is specified. Note that inputs which were signed may need to be resigned after completion since in/outputs have been added. The inputs added will not be signed, use signrawtransaction for that. Note that all existing inputs must have their previous output transaction be in the wallet. Note that all inputs selected must be of standard form and P2SH scripts must be in the wallet using importaddress or addmultisigaddress (to calculate fees). You can see whether this is the case by checking the "solvable" field in the listunspent output. Only pay-to-pubkey, multisig, and P2SH versions thereof are currently supported for watch-only

Arguments

  • hexstring
    string
    The hex string of the raw transaction
  • options
    optionalobject
    { "changeAddress" (string, optional, default pool address) The bitcoin address to receive the change "changePosition" (numeric, optional, default random) The index of the change output "change_type" (string, optional) The output type to use. Only valid if changeAddress is not specified. Options are "legacy", "p2sh-segwit", and "bech32". Default is set by -changetype. "includeWatching" (boolean, optional, default false) Also select inputs which are watch only "lockUnspents" (boolean, optional, default false) Lock selected unspent outputs "feeRate" (numeric, optional, default not set: makes wallet determine the fee) Set a specific fee rate in LBC/kB "subtractFeeFromOutputs" (array, optional) A json array of integers. The fee will be equally deducted from the amount of each specified output. The outputs are specified by their zero-based index, before any change output is added. Those recipients will receive less bitcoins than you enter in their corresponding amount field. If no outputs are specified here, the sender pays the fee. [vout_index,...] "replaceable" (boolean, optional) Marks this transaction as BIP125 replaceable. Allows this transaction to be replaced by a transaction with higher fees "conf_target" (numeric, optional) Confirmation target (in blocks) "estimate_mode" (string, optional, default=UNSET) The fee estimate mode, must be one of: "UNSET" "ECONOMICAL" "CONSERVATIVE" } for backward compatibility: passing in a true instead of an object will result in {"includeWatching":true}
  • iswitness
    optionalboolean
    Whether the transaction hex is a serialized witness transaction If iswitness is not present, heuristic tests will be used in decoding

Returns

{
"hex":       "value", (string)  The resulting raw transaction (hex-encoded string)
"fee":       n,         (numeric) Fee in LBC the resulting transaction pays
"changepos": n          (numeric) The position of the added change output, or -1
}

Create a transaction with no inputs


> lbrycrd-cli createrawtransaction "[]" "{\"myaddress\":0.01}"

Add sufficient unsigned inputs to meet the output value

getrawtransaction

NOTE: By default this function only works for mempool transactions. If the -txindex option is enabled, it also works for blockchain transactions. If the block which contains the transaction is known, its hash can be provided even for nodes without -txindex. Note that if a blockhash is provided, only that block will be searched and if the transaction is in the mempool or other blocks, or if this node does not have the given block available, the transaction will not be found. DEPRECATED: for now, it also works for transactions with unspent outputs. Return the raw transaction data. If verbose is 'true', returns an Object with information about 'txid'. If verbose is 'false' or omitted, returns a string that is serialized, hex-encoded data for 'txid'.

Arguments

  • txid
    string
    The transaction id
  • verbose
    optionalboolean
    If false, return a string, otherwise return a json object
  • blockhash
    optionalstring
    The block in which to look for the transaction

Returns

"data"      (string) The serialized, hex-encoded data for 'txid'

Result (if verbose is set to true):

> curl --user myusername --data-binary '{"jsonrpc": "1.0", "id":"curltest", "method": "backupwallet", "params": ["backup.dat"] }' -H 'content-type: text/plain;' http://127.0.0.1:9245/

bumpfee

Bumps the fee of an opt-in-RBF transaction T, replacing it with a new transaction B. An opt-in RBF transaction with the given txid must be in the wallet. The command will pay the additional fee by decreasing (or perhaps removing) its change output. If the change output is not big enough to cover the increased fee, the command will currently fail instead of adding new inputs to compensate. (A future implementation could improve this.) The command will fail if the wallet or mempool contains a transaction that spends one of T's outputs. By default, the new fee will be calculated automatically using estimatesmartfee. The user can specify a confirmation target for estimatesmartfee. Alternatively, the user can specify totalFee, or use RPC settxfee to set a higher fee rate. At a minimum, the new fee rate must be high enough to pay an additional new relay fee (incrementalfee returned by getnetworkinfo) to enter the node's mempool.

Arguments

  • txid
    string
    The txid to be bumped
  • options
    optionalobject
    { "confTarget" (numeric, optional) Confirmation target (in blocks) "totalFee" (numeric, optional) Total fee (NOT feerate) to pay, in satoshis. In rare cases, the actual fee paid might be slightly higher than the specified totalFee if the tx change output has to be removed because it is too close to the dust threshold. "replaceable" (boolean, optional, default true) Whether the new transaction should still be marked bip-125 replaceable. If true, the sequence numbers in the transaction will be left unchanged from the original. If false, any input sequence numbers in the original transaction that were less than 0xfffffffe will be increased to 0xfffffffe so the new transaction will not be explicitly bip-125 replaceable (though it may still be replaceable in practice, for example if it has unconfirmed ancestors which are replaceable). "estimate_mode" (string, optional, default=UNSET) The fee estimate mode, must be one of: "UNSET" "ECONOMICAL" "CONSERVATIVE" }

Returns

{
"txid":    "value",   (string)  The id of the new transaction
"origfee":  n,         (numeric) Fee of the replaced transaction
"fee":      n,         (numeric) Fee of the new transaction
"errors":  [ str... ] (json array of strings) Errors encountered during processing (may be empty)

dumpwallet

Dumps all wallet keys in a human-readable format to a server-side file. This does not allow overwriting existing files. Imported scripts are included in the dumpfile, but corresponding BIP173 addresses, etc. may not be added automatically by importwallet. Note that if your wallet contains keys which are not derived from your HD seed (e.g. imported keys), these are not covered by only backing up the seed itself, and must be backed up too (e.g. ensure you back up the whole dumpfile).

Arguments

  • filename
    string
    The filename with path (either absolute or relative to bitcoind)

Returns

{                           (json object)

encryptwallet

Encrypts the wallet with 'passphrase'. This is for first time encryption. After this, any calls that interact with private keys such as sending or signing will require the passphrase to be set prior the making these calls. Use the walletpassphrase call for this, and then walletlock call. If the wallet is already encrypted, use the walletpassphrasechange call.

Arguments

  • passphrase
    string
    The pass phrase to encrypt the wallet with. It must be at least 1 character, but should be long.

Encrypt your wallet


> lbrycrd-cli encryptwallet "my pass phrase"

Now set the passphrase to use the wallet, such as for signing or sending bitcoin


> lbrycrd-cli walletpassphrase "my pass phrase"

Now we can do something like sign


> lbrycrd-cli signmessage "address" "test message"

Now lock the wallet again by removing the passphrase


> lbrycrd-cli walletlock

getbalance

If account is not specified, returns the server's total available balance. The available balance is what the wallet considers currently spendable, and is thus affected by options which limit spendability such as -spendzeroconfchange. If account is specified (DEPRECATED), returns the balance in the account. Note that the account "" is not the same as leaving the parameter out. The server total may be different to the balance in the default "" account.

Arguments

  • account
    optionalstring
    DEPRECATED. This argument will be removed in V0.
  • To use this deprecated argument, start bitcoind with -deprecatedrpc=accounts. The account string may be given as a specific account name to find the balance associated with wallet keys in a named account, or as the empty string
    ""
    to find the balance associated with wallet keys not in any named account, or as "*" to find the balance associated with all wallet keys regardless of account. When this option is specified, it calculates the balance in a different way than when it is not specified, and which can count spends twice when there are conflicting pending transactions (such as those created by the bumpfee command), temporarily resulting in low or even negative balances. In general, account balance calculation is not considered reliable and has resulted in confusing outcomes, so it is recommended to avoid passing this argument.
  • minconf
    optionalnumber
    Only include transactions confirmed at least this many times. The default is 1 if an account is provided or 0 if no account is provided
  • include_watchonly
    optionalboolean

The timestamp of the oldest key will determine how far back blockchain rescans need to begin for missing wallet transactions. "now" can be specified to bypass scanning, for keys which are known to never have been used, and 0 can be specified to scan the entire blockchain. Blocks up to 2 hours before the earliest key creation time of all keys being imported by the importmulti call will be scanned.
